Teaching Practise 8
Pre-intermediate level


In this lesson students will review most of the tenses they have covered during the course. Then they will follow this up with a short speaking activity. Actually, this lesson will be planned according to the students' understanding of the previous grammar lessons. I will prepare extra activities in case students could remember and do the exercise very well and quickly.

Subsidiary Aims

Warmer/ Lead in (2-3 minutes) • To engage students

Ask some questions about some kinds of transportation in Turkey (Old and new ones) Do you have cars? Is Istanbul a crowded city? Why? How was it in the past?

Test (4-5 minutes) • To diagnose student's knowledge of/ ability to use the target language

T gives students a handout with a test. They need to choose the correct form of the verb (Revision of tenses) Check in pairs Feedback (answer keys) While monitoring I have to check how much do they remember and how much time should I spend on the next stage "clarification or reminding"

Language clarification (reminding) if needed (7-10 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through the reading text

T gives students a table of tenses with timelines and forms, they need to work in pairs and find an example for every structure in the reading text (they already have the text). Feed back with the whole class on the board Ask CCQs to make sure that Ss remember the meaning, form and pronunciation of tenses and the differences between them

Controlled practice (4-5 minutes) • To practise the form and meaning of the TL

Ss work inpairs to fill in the gaps with the correct form of the verb. Feebback with the whole class

semi- controlled practice (5-7 minutes) • to concept check further and prepare students for freer practice

T projects the questions the students have already completed in the controlled practice and asks them to work in pairs answering thes questions

Freer practice (8-10 minutes) • to provide students with freer practice of the target language

Students sit in two groups each group will be given 2 piles of fashcards (the first one for time words and expressions, the second one for verbs). Example: (last week, visit) they might write: I visited my uncle last week. Students will play a competative game using these cards to make full sentences each group has to write down the sentences they said. so the group who has a bigger number of sentences will win.

Delayed error correction (4-5 minutes) • to correct students errors

While Ss are doing the freer speaking practice. T writes down some sentences on the board, then elicits corrections and praises Ss for good job.
